Greeze talks about his experience being the first person in an entire medical system's files to catch the flu this season. Will thought it was only appropriate to dole out some medicine in the form of Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style, coming in at 115 proof. It is in the style of the whiskey produced by Old Forester during prohibition and only available by prescription. The guys also have their buddy Aaron sitting in the studio, and get his thoughts on the bourbon. Then, after the 15, Will and the Greeze drink J.W. Dant Bottled-in-Bond.
Will and the Greeze have their friend Brandon back over to get an update on his bourbon habit. Then he selects for them the bourbon for the 15: Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. The guys get into a discussion about avoiding high school classes and the Greeze schools will on bourbon aging in different rickhouse locations. Have a happy Thanksgiving y'all!
In this episode, Will and the Greeze stray a bit from straight bourbon, and try a whiskey liqueur: Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream. Then, after the 15, they try Stagg Jr., a high proof offering from Buffalo Trace. This is the second week with the new rating system "Buy, Bar, or Pass," but the guys forgot all about it during the recording. Greeze was a sport and called in while sick in bed to ensure we keep this new rating system apart of the show. Cheers!
Will and the Greeze make another trek out to the Made South Barn to drink some whiskey. This time we have a Booker's round table pick, Smooth Ambler Rye, and the 2014 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. Greeze was in charge of the food... you'll hear how that turned out.
Also, were doing a contest to give away passes to the Made South Holiday Market on Nov. 19 at the Factory in Franklin, TN. To enter, go to our instagram (@thePodCask) and read the instructions on the photo about the give away. All entries must be in by 11:59pm CT on Nov. 13, 2016. Check it out!
It's time... Will finally tells the story of how the Greeze got his name. Will and the Greeze divert off bourbon during the topic portion and just tell a few stories. They bring it back to bourbon by telling a story about Will nearly running over a friend in a liquor store parking lot. Then, after the 15, Will and the Greeze sample Michter's Limited Release Barrel Strength Rye and implement a new rating system.
